Taste: complex, smooth and semi sweet caramel malt,with some hop piney notes with fresh dry finish. Add a bit of of boozy, bready nose. Copper/amber hue, clear for the most part, delicate broken ring of lace. Medium body, easy to drink IPA. 65 IBUs

05/07/18 on bottle neck
Amber with thick 1+-finger off white frothy head with sticky retention and copious lacing.
Aroma is mainly grapefruit, honeysuckle, grass, and mint. The malt component, while daunting by appearance (aka heavy caramel malt) is pretty unobtrusive with some graham
cracker notes.
Flavor is dominated by a solid blast of bitterness but finished with some nuanced hop flavors including grapefruit, orange, weed, grassy, and mintiness in the finish. The malt backbone is light in caramel character and is mainly solid pale malt with a little toasty note also.
Feel is excellent with lighter than expected body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish with no alcohol presence. Dangerously quaffable at 7%.
I was pretty impressed by Hop Manna despite it not being the freshest bottle - it does a good job of scratching the hop and bitterness itches while remaining drinkable.

On draft at Buffalo Wild Wings. Deep copper color with a white 1/2" head. Caramel malts, bready, hops. Taste is different but too malty. No citrus but floral notes and herbs. Had a medium to heavy feel and it was okay beer but too one sided with the malt overtones.

I picked up a 12er variety pack of this at my local ABC simply because I had never heard of it before and it was on discount. I think I might have stumbled onto something pretty good here...

I really wasn't giving this much of a chance considering the 12er was on the shelf since at least December 2016 (and I picked it up this April 2017). Not sure why I grabbed it, just did. As I do by plan I always try the IPAs first from a variety pack leaving the darker beers for last. This Hop Manna poured out the most unique looking color from the bottle that caught my eye right off the bat. In the glass it was an orange tinged brew with lighter highlights that had a decent head with little staying power and no lacing. The smell was a strong citrusy odor mixing well with the hops they tout on the bottle. Though the mouthfeel was lightly carbonated, it did have a watery feel I'm not too keen on, but not overly watery.

Now we come to the taste - on the one hand it is unique, on the other, the uniqueness is a bit to odd for my taste. Not sure I would be going out of my way for downing more of these than what I already have on hand. All things considered, it is definitely different and new, and I'm sure there are folks that will like the uniqueness of this beer.

pours light copper color with off white head.
Aroma is of bready malts, caramel. slightly floral and nice grapefruit and orange peel
little too malty on the taste for me, more floral and biscuit than the aroma.'
medium body well carbonated slightly dry finish
Overall just not a good fit flavor wise too malty.
